A co-production with the Royal Exchange Theatre
by Winsome Pinnock
25 August – 9 October
‘A swirling journey through black history‘
On the set of a new film about Victorian artist JMW Turner, young actress Lou is haunted by an unresolved history. Meanwhile, in 1840 Londoners Lucy and Thomas try to come to terms with the meaning of freedom.
Moving between London past and present, we embark on a powerfully personal voyage through time.
Directed by Miranda Cromwell, and first staged at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, this astonishing and fiercely political new play by Winsome Pinnock was named winner of the 2018 Alfred Fagon Award.
